Star Wars saga gets Blu-Ray treatment
September 16th, 2011 has been slated as the released date for the Blu Ray version of the Star Wars trilogy. Fans will be able to choose between the full, six film saga (pictured on the left), or either of the original and prequel trilogies. Naturally, old George is propping these up with both barrels of his propaganda machine, trying to convince the world how these are THE definitive versions of the film. Of course, they said this when the DVD box set came out a few years back. And they’ll probably say it again when the movies are released again in the future, this time on a microchip hardwired into our brain that promises so much realism that we’ll be able to smell the sweat on a bantha’s….well, you get the picture.
